Museu Nacional de Arte Antiga in Lisbon

I visited the Museu Nacional de Art Antiga (National Museum of Ancient Art) when I was in Lisbon in March 2012. One of the perks of being a guest at the nearby Janelas Verdes hotel was free entry to the Museum and as it was pretty hot (28 degrees celsius), I was looking for somewhere out of the heat.
